boundary on the way, today we'll see wet weather, and the rest of the week not terrible right now. yes, so, sort of taking the lumps as we have to once in a while. >> you'll be at work. >> exactly, yes. if you are lucky enough to have the day off today, you may have to dodge a shower or thunderstorm, but should be pretty spot. yes, but little muggier as a result, too. always tends to, right? so we go ahead, right on outside, at the moment, just some clouds overhead on "skycam 3", we overlook center city off in the distance there, all of the buildings lit up nicely, no low clouds, all is good, and at least all is clear, as far as your visibility is concerned. however, that is going to be changing for us with the approach and eventual passage of the neck cold front that's on the way. so you can already see things beginning to bubble up here outside for the most part the general viewing area here. so lancaster county starting to see few little spots, speckles out on the area radar. we'll eventually see this overtake the region. so with more moisture building in, higher dew points, little
muggier after atmosphere, actual cold front we are tracking is still crossing through the great lakes region. this is what's going to cross through and bring in some heavier thunderstorms, as early as tonight, but specially into tomorrow. soap, that's what we are looking ahead to. generally speaking, your showers and storms today come through the second half of the day. again, already seeing that on the area radar, we could allow it for any time. but it should still be pretty scattered in nature. mid 80s generally the he can peck takes here, lower 80s, more clouds, showers, storms to track, again there is looks like the wettest day of the next five, six, seven really. so in is really going to be the stormy day of our forecast, watch for showers locally heavy or gusty thunderstorms to rumble through with that front. and then we clear it all out. sun returns for wednesday. and even beyond that point. so, it is a nice forecast, i would say, generally speaking, except forefront loaded with some wet weather. 83 degrees today. later on tonight we drop it down to 72, muggier night on tap with showers and thunderstorms, dotting the area radar. and then again, tomorrow, i would say that's the day that
definitely requires an umbrella. but even today, it wouldn't be the worse idea just because even though it is spotty, you could get drenched if you are unlucky you have no get stuck under one of the little pocket of rain. erika, back to you. >> in campaign 2016, donald trump defending himself over comments over fox news anchor megan kelly. presidential candidate was not happy about a question kelly asked, during the debate about sexist comment made by trump in the past. >> you know, could you see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her where ever. >> trump is not apologizing for the comments, but he is softening his position by suggesting he meant she would be bleeding perhaps from her nose. >> i'm very angry. all i was doing, referring -- i said nothing wrong whatsoever. do you think i would make a stupid statement like that? who would make a statement like that? only a sick person would even think about it.
>> trump was dis-invite from the conservative event this weekend following those remarks. and in a interview, taped before the blood comment, making kelly respond to trump's behavior during the debate. it was. >> it was the first time he ever participated in a presidential debate. so i am sure the nerves were high as they were for all of the candidate. and, you know, he felt the attack it, wasn't an attack, it was fay question. but i get it, he is in the arena, and so am i. >> kelly has yet to weigh in on the blood comment. how much, other presidential candidate have bashed trump. many saying you can't just assume a woman is hormonal when she comes at you with a tough question. >> 4:47 right now. still ahead on "eyewitness news" this morning, some big changes coming to target stores. we have the details for you coming up in our money watch report. first though, here's what's ahead tonight on cbs-3.

judged. >> morning, if you are just waking up, good morning, roads are looking pretty good. right now so far so good. we've had couple of incidents, one cleared out of the way, 95 northbound, no longer in existence. here is a look at the schuylkill expressway at spring garden, looking great there. as you can see, 422 eastbound at trooper road for those of you heading out, head being toward the king of prussia area, it is looking like a ghosttown, that's what we want to see this early hour. also, 42 freeway northbound at creek road. you can see, kind of steady flow, this is actually what we typically see for those every you coming out of jersey, heading toward 295, this is what it looks like, hopefully that will hold somewhat steady. we had very serious accident, happen earlier, that's still in play, overturned vehicle, at roosevelt boulevard southbound at adams avenue.
the center lane is blocked for those of you, so you might want to think about using an alternate, erika, or actually katie, i have to tell you, thank goodness the roads are dry, but already in traffic, we've had kind of series every accidents. soap, hopefully, you snow. >> off to little rough start for a monday morning, you know, at least when the weather department here, at least we can report not everyone dealing with too much in the way of major weather-related issues but it will be changing with time. front moving through, you know what that means, eventually wet weather has to do the very same. and at the moment, most every are you dry. you can see the sign, tell tail sign of things to come. even through backs through berks, lancaster county already finding couple of scattered, very isolated showers firing up on the area radar. that's going to be with us through the better part of the day. you know, it is not going to be one of those situations where you see wash out by any stretch. and if you really don't want to cart umbrella along, feel free to leave it at home. but also don't be shock if you see a quick shower that is bringing locally heavy downpour at some point throughout the course of the
day, especially headed into tomorrow. we start to see the threat for heavier downpours, strong he wind, frequent lightning, hail and tornado risk thankfully low here, but another colds front. pretty potent one looks like, not necessarily knocking temperatures back all that much. it will bring with it some gusto, we say, so looking ahead to tomorrow, wettest day of the forecast, even today, erika, shower or thunderstorm still going to be out there. >> good to know, thanks, katie. coming up up: we have the latest on unrest in ferguson, where shots have been fired overnight. >> also, ahead, another drone spotted near one of the nation's busiest airports. we'll hauer audio from air traffic controllers. >> and remembering frank gifford, we're hearing from his wife, kathy lee, and nfl commissioner roger goodel. that and more when "eyewitness news" continues at 5:00.

morning. >> good morning, mondays typically are busy and sure shaping up to be that way this monday morning, katie. >> yes, it looks that way weather wise, too, meisha a things finally starting to go little more downhill. we have been kind of spoiled in recent days here, where we've had very pleasant weather recently, not necessarily going to be the case throughout the day today. but, it is also going to be one of those mixed bag casino every days. you see this all the time in summer, where you have a little sun, you have couple of clouds, you have a shower, you have a thunderstorm. just makes for very word i forecast. do you have allow for all of that to take place, start things offer by taking you on outside, show you on storm scan, this basically just a snapshot view of the regional radar, with our tri-state sweep being made on all of the different radars, picking up on couple of little pocket already, of few showers, out, right on the border of new castle county, lancaster, berks. so just the combination, folks, not talking about wash out by any stretch. but there will be this sort of scattered variety, of showers, and/or thunderstorms, firing up throughout the day. it is all frontal boundary related, again, not going to be wash out by
